'With an Introduction & Biography by Toru Sasaki, Professor of English Literature, Kyoto University, Japan.
Chesterton is so good on Dickens because his wit is as sharp as that of the Great Inimitable himself. No one surpasses him in catching and conveying the sense of wonder that is Dickens, and his contagious enthusiasm will be sure to send the reader to the books with more alertness and keener appreciation.'
